AUSTIN, Texas -- A rough start left Waubeeka Golf Links pro Erik Tiele with some work to do after one round of the 31st Senior PGA Professional Championship.
 
Starting on the 10th tee at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa's Coore Crenshaw Course, Tiele made the turn at 8-over after a front nine that included a pair of double bogeys.
 
He made his first birdie of the day on his 11th hole, the par-4 No. 2.
 
He ended the day with a 10-over 80 and stands tied for 255th place in the field.
 
After Round 2 on Friday, the field will be cut to the low 90 plus ties. The top 70 will make it into the fourth round on Sunday.
 
Frank Bensel Jr., of Florida's Century Golf Club leads the field after Day 1 with a 7-under par that he earned on Barton Creek's Fazio Foothills Course, where Tiele will compete on Friday.

Williams' Kirshe, American Ruggers Come Back for Win

Williams Sports Information
TOKYO, Japan – Williams College alum Kristi Kirshe and the U.S. women's ruby 7s Friday overcame a 12-point deficit to earn a 14-12 win over Australia.
 
In the first half Australia managed to keep the USA bottled up inside its own 22 and that created a short try opportunity for the Aussies. Australia took a 7-0 lead into halftime. Early in the second half, the Aussies scored again, but this time the conversion failed and Australia led 12-0.
 
The remainder of the second half was a much different story as the USA was able to open up its passing game and use their size advantage to climb back into the contest.
 
Cheta Emba powered her way in for a try with 4:09 remaining, and Nicole Heavirland was successful on the conversion kick and the USA’s 12 point deficit was now down to five points. Australia struggled to create any offense as the size and speed of the USA team continued to wear the Aussies down.
